I kept seeing all of the wonderful blogs around who were participating in Vintage Christmas Monday and it looked like so much fun! I was unsure whether or not I would be able to come up with enough “goodies” to keep everyone interested but thought I might give it a try. To visit all of the other fabulous participants, simply click on the party button on my right side bar.
After looking around, I have more true vintage decorations than I thought. Like this cute little sleigh and reindeer. Although I found them recently while cleaning out a cabinet at my mother’s, I know without a doubt that they originally belonged to my Nanny. That gold spray paint is a dead giveaway!
I added the little bottle brush tree, angel, and glittered wreath.
I think I agree with my Nanny in this case. The little guys look very festive painted gold! I know I know, you “neutral” girls are thinking “how could you!” Then again, you probably don’t have a pink Christmas tree either!
These little carolers are also a recent find. I’m thinking that they are probably from around the 1960’s?
I’ve had this little guy for years. Somewhere along the way he lost his lantern. I can’t WAIT to show you what he’s sitting in! I just purchased it Friday. My favorite shop in OKC, Room 22, had a 1 hour 40% off sale from 8:00 to 9:00 AM Friday morning and I had been eyeing this particular item for some time.
That was the first time EVER EVER that I have been out on a black Friday, so you know that I really really wanted it. I went shopping there and then came straight home.
This waiting until Saturday to show you what I’ve been up to is just KILLING me! I hope you all enjoy all of my decorating. My party post Saturday is going to be a looong one!
I’m looking forward to my party here Friday night and the blog party Saturday! What a fun filled weekend that will be!
Again, for anyone who is interested, it’s not too late to sign up for the blog party! We have wonderful participants already and the more the merrier!
If for any reason I have failed to add you to the party list at the top left of my sidebar or failed to answer your e-mails let me know. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks and although I think I’m caught up with everything, you never know.
Hope you ALL had a perfect Thanksgiving!
